Summer Theme

The summer is always a fun and energetic time when it comes to fashion. No longer do our heavy winter jackets hide away our favourite outfits. Instead, we can finally bear all and show the world what we’re rocking this season!

With that in mind ,it’s the perfect time to wear your boldest and brightest clothes, try out the newest trends and take a few risks with your outfits. While the clothes are the basis to our look, no outfit is truly complete without a fabulous accessory or two… or three…or more - You really can’t go overboard, after a long year at home people everywhere are itching to show off their style and many are calling Summer the season of over-accessorising!

We’ve been working hard to curate the most on trend summer items right now so that you don’t have to… So, let’s take a look at what the accessory trends are for Summer:

1. Wooden Jewellery

Wooden jewellery has been growing in popularity over the last few years and is still very much on trend for this summer season. One of the major selling points for wooden accessories - is it’s a naturally renewable resource, making it a great material for creating sustainable fashion. So, if you’re looking to live a more Eco-Friendly life… adding an earthy feel to your look this is the way to go.

Wooden jewellery is also a great option for those of us with sensitive skin. As it’s a natural material - it won’t cause irritation like some metals do. Not only that, but it’s light-weight nature makes them extremely comfortable to wear in comparison to the heavier metal chains that while fabulous might often weigh us down.

In our increasingly environmentally conscious world this accessory trend ticks all the boxes. We don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon - so if you haven’t already… it’s time to add some chic wooden pieces to your collection!
